Mister Fincher and Monsieur Dreyer

27 July 2015 4:44 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film.

5 ways to be a better, less basic Meryl Streep fan

22 June 2015 6:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Meryl Streep's 66th birthday. Have you noticed that Meryl's supposed "superfans" spend a lot of time lionizing her but remaining unspecific about what makes her performances and movies so good? Let's change that. To celebrate Meryl's birthday, let's remind ourselves how we can be less basic when it comes to appreciating her work. I'm tired of people screaming "She Is Perfection!!!" and the leaving their appraisal at that. She's a significant artist we can always appreciate more.  1. Know that "A Cry in the Dark" is Meryl's most prescient film.  "The dingo ate my baby." It's not a comedic line; it's a woman screaming when she learns an animal has killed her child. "A Cry in the Dark" is perhaps the most misremembered movie in Meryl's filmography, a damning portrait of frenzied trial coverage and how sensational news can ruin an innocent person's reputation. As Lindy Chamberlain, Meryl finds »

Watch: Universal's 'Secret Life of Pets' Reveals What They Do When You're Away

18 June 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Illumination's first look at "The Secret Life of Pets" (Chris Renaud) looked promising, as comedy voice actors Louis Ck, Kevin Hart, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Dana Carvey, Steve Coogan and Albert Brooks show us what pets do when their masters close the door every morning. One loyal mastiff waits by the door. A bird opens up its cage and flies free. A very fat cat tries to resist the temptation to raid the refrigerator--and fails. A bulldog repeatedly barks and throws itself at the window as a squirrel flits outside. A cat changes the music from classical to punk. The movie has moved from February 2016 to July 2016.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

25 Years In La Part 4: 'Masters Of Horror,' Revolution, and getting Foxed

18 June 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like all superheroes (or anyone else who uses a secret identity), there came a moment when someone finally cracked the code and published my real name. To be fair, my identity was a pretty poorly-kept secret by that point. The first time I went to an actual press event, I used my real name, and anytime I met someone, I used my real name. "Moriarty" was a fun identity to slip into, and especially in the early days of the site, we played up the mythology of things. My friends all got their own spy names and would show up in the reports in the form of Henchman Mongo and Segue Zagnut and Harry Lime and more. From my end, it was silly and fun, and not something to be taken seriously. But when Film Threat ran a fairly vicious hit piece on Harry, I was also a target, and »
